In The Army Now
|Verulam Angling Club are absolutely delighted to announce
that with immediate effect we are granting honorary membership of the club to
all serving personnel of the Royal Anglian Regiment of the British Army.
As many of you will know, the Royal
Anglians are our local regiment, drawing from Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and
Buckinghamshire for their personnel. They are an infantry regiment which is
regularly on the front line, with postings to Afghanistan and Iraq as well as
other theatres all over the world. We are extremely pleased to be able to “help
our heros” by allowing the troops to fish our waters for free.
We are sure that you will agree that we
all owe a great debt to our Armed Forces. Until recently, they have been largely
unappreciated. However, over the past few years there seems to have been a
groundswell of support for the Armed Forces, and we are very pleased to be able
to “do our bit”, albeit on a small scale. Perhaps as much as the offer of the
free fishing itself, the forces appreciate the message and gesture of support
for what they are doing. The following is an extract from an email from Captain
Lee Jay, the Unit Welfare Officer for 1st
Bn Royal Anglian Regiment;
You may be aware that many of the soldiers serving
with 1st Battalion the Royal Anglian Regiment are currently in Afghanistan,
returning late October 2012. We take tremendous pride in being a County
based Regiment, with soldiers coming from Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Essex,
Hertfordshire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire, Norfolk, Northamptonshire and
Suffolk. Unfortunately, through the very nature of the job we receive many
injuries on Operations and our soldiers spend long periods of time in hospitals
and the gymnasium, rehabilitating and attempting to recover from those injuries.
Your gift as a club has enabled us
to break up this routine by introducing them to a new and challenging sport in
which all can participate .
The soldiers I am sure will
have mixed results in terms of fish being caught, but all will have an
opportunity to experience a much welcomed and enjoyable change.
Please accept our thanks for your generosity as a club. It is very much
appreciated by all the soldiers - even those that do not fish would know of such
a kind gesture. However those that do fish will be overjoyed with the
local hospitality and will relish the opportunity to catch bigger and more
than his/her swim neighbour!
Captain L W Jay
| UWO 1 R
As you can see, offers of this type mean
a great deal to the Armed Forces, and more than anything else, it confirms to
them that their efforts on our behalf are appreciated. Only a small percentage
of the soldiers will be anglers, and it will therefore make very little
difference to existing club members in terms of the number of anglers on our
waters. We will of course monitor the take up of our offer, and if certain
waters become unduly busy, we have reserved the right to withdraw access.
I hope you will agree that this is a welcome partnership.
Please welcome the soldiers onto our fisheries wherever you come across them.
And one final point – the club would like to confirm from the outset that the
nickname of the second battalion of the Royal Anglian regiment is pure
coincidence – they are known as “The Poachers”………
